Choosing the perfect wedding gift for friends and family can be a rather daunting task even when there is a gift list.  Today we have Founder and CEO of Houseology.com, Kate Mooney sharing her top tips for sourcing the perfect wedding gift that the newlyweds will cherish for years to come.

CONSIDER THE COUPLE’S TASTES

What do they like doing as a couple?  Are they lovers of the great outdoors?  How about giving them something unusual like a hammock?  Maybe they are more indoorsy and love to read in which case their shelves full of books could benefit from the gift of bookends.  Whatever their tastes, ensure your perfect wedding gift speaks to their passions.

BUY SOMETHING YOU WOULDN’T BUY YOURSELF

A beautiful vase of statement centrepiece is a gift you would never usually treat yourself to but is a beautiful luxury to own.  The Vera Wang with Love Gift Centrepiece Bowl is vintage inspired and the interlocking pattern symbolises the eternity of love.

GO BACK TO BASICS

The happy couple will want to remember their day forever.  Opt for a simple but stylish photo frame that will sit seamlessly in a range of interiors and of course, is perfect for framing a wedding photo.  Try the Lene Bjerre Austin Photo Frame for a chic design that will flawlessly mesh with any decor style.

CHOOSE A CONTEMPORARY CLASSIC

Glassware and, in particular, champagne flutes are a classic wedding gift as what better way to toast the happy couple?  However, be sure to choose a design that will stand the test of time.

DON’T FORGET SOFT FURNISHINGS

Items that we take for granted are a great place to start when it comes to giving gifts to new homeowners with a whole house to decorate.  Luxurious bath towels and bed linen are the perfect foundations for a new home and can also add a luxurious touch of designer style.

ACCESSORISE

The gifts couples want these days are changing and not everyone will be looking to furnish a house as many will have lived together for years.  But decorative accessories will rejuvenate their home for the start of married life.  Try some lovely scented candles to add oomph to any room.

MAKE IT UNIQUE

Just like the wedding day itself, gifts given on this day will be ones to remember.  Go for something unusual like a Tom Dixon Bone Bowl if you want a one of a kid present.  Gifts do not need to be overly unique, but a certain level of thought should be put into them.  Monogrammed or customised presents can add that extra little personal touch.
